    Problems with Redhat on windows Network


    Ok, heres my problem.

    I recently installed redhat 7.3 on a lab computer for testing purposes, but after the network settings are set it cannot browse the internet.

    Wierd thing is that i can ping out of the building but i cannot retrive information. Im not sure if its a problem with the firewall or if its a problem with the windows network that we run in this building.

    Could the windows network prevent me from surfing the internet because i do not have the option to get WINNS because its not windows?

    If anyone has any idea that could help me i would be greatly appriciated.

    Sounds like the Firewall might be blocking you. Check with your Administrator
